We welcome Willamette students and community members to experience our music concerts, which are performed by our ensembles, students and faculty both on and off campus.
Our Music Department faculty and students are an especially generous collection of performers. Not only do they spend countless hours honing their talents, they share their gifts with concerts and recitals throughout the year.
Every week, we sponsor a recital giving students an opportunity to perform before faculty and peers, and to experience repertoire from various media and music historical periods.
Our major performing ensembles tour regularly throughout the Northwest, California and Canada. Plus, were always offering something fresh with our New Music at Willamette concert series.
Our Grace Goudy Distinguished Artists Series brings world-renowned musicians to Salem several times each year — a wonderful cultural treat for our students and surrounding community.
Plus our new ensemble Willamette Pro Musica, founded in 2018 by Prof. Hector Aguero, a chamber orchestra offering the rare opportunity for undergraduate students to perform in a real-world/professional setting alongside their music professors and local professional musicians. Additionally, Willamette Pro Musica offers our faculty the chance to perform concertos and other solo works with their colleagues and students. The collaborative nature of this ensemble is what makes it so special.
